Moving over... PostSpectacular is here

As one or the other might have noticed by now, this blog has not gotten a lot of love (or any attention in general) from me for a long, long time now and this will most likely be one of the last posts over here...

The reason for all this silence has been that last autumn I decided to finally take the step I'd been preparing for such a long time and so I'd finally setup my own studio to work more freely, collaborate more, opensource more and generally be able to focus more on interesting computational design projects, be they commercial or artistic.

PostSpectacular is here, along with a new blog and a list of recent projects. I've also nailed down a little manifesto for this new endeavour to help myself and my (new) clients.

Giving interested people more insight into our way of working is also an important part of this new setup and inspired by the manifesto so far I've written up quite detailed documentations (incl. one with a making-of video) for these 4 recent projects in the hope to share & inspire:

Print magazine cover design, August 2008

A generative typographic sculpture realized with Processing and 3D printing

Faber Finds

Created a software solution to generate unique book covers for this new print-on-demand service.

Nokia Friends

Software animation instrument and physics driven character generator.

Advanced Beauty: Enerugii, pt.II

Audio responsive HD motiongraphics piece for this collaborative DVD project.

At this point, I just want to say thanks to everyone who's taken the time to come by here now and in the past and I hope to see you again at the new place! Danke! Btw. At the time of this writing, the new studio website is still a bit rough around the edges, but in true agile manner it's already been running for 10 months on a customized/themed version of DokuWiki and most of the important content is there now..
